Georges St-Pierre might want to re-examine his choice of training partners for his upcoming UFC 137 bout with Carlos Condit on October 29. You would think he would be picking the brain of his friend and teammate Rory MacDonald, who was seven seconds away from upsetting the former WEC welterweight champ at UFC 115 before getting TKO’d by “The Natural Born Killer.” Instead, “Rush” is thinking outside the box and has brought in Dan Hardy, who hasn’t won a fight since 2009, to help him prepare for the only guy to have knocked “The Outlaw” out. Makes sense, right?
Maybe he’s using some kind of new age reverse psychology or maybe the concept of employing mind games (like when Hardy went to train with Matt Serra for his UFC 111 bout with St-Pierre) is somehow lost in translation with the UFC welterweight champ. Whatever the reason for bringing him into his camp, St-Pierre seems to think it will help, so who are we to judge? We hear Jon Jones is bringing in Brandon Vera to help him get ready for Rashad.
